6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

The wind is forecast to become NE this morning and increase to
around 15kts, with a few higher gusts. Shra is moving into the
area already this morning, so, vcsh is in TAF for the entire
period for most east coast terminals. In generalVFR conditions,
other than only brief ifr restrictions possible in and near
showers through the day.

synopsis: an unsettled pattern setting up as a front stalls over
the region today and a series of disturbances moves over the
region Tuesday and again late in the week.

Near term (today-tonight): the front now moving through south
florida will stall out later today near the southern tip of the
peninsula. Showers have been forming overnight over the atlantic
waters along and behind the surface boundary, and the front will
continue to be a focus for showers today. As winds veer to more
easterly and the residual boundary begins to retreat northward,
the showers are likely to spread back over south florida from
southeast to northwest this afternoon and tonight.

Short term (Tuesday-Wednesday): as the remnant front continues
moving northward Tuesday, the greatest concentration of showers
will also shift northward into the lake okeechobee palm beach
region and up into central florida. However, with a relatively
moist air mass in place and a shortwave trough approaching from
the gulf, scattered showers will be possible at times farther
south Tuesday. The strengthening wind fields aloft and focused
upward motion ahead of the shortwave trough should be sufficient
for a few scattered thunderstorms Tuesday, particularly northern
sections closer to the front. Wednesday now appears to be a
relatively dry day with the remnant surface boundary north of the
area and lower tropospheric subsidence in the wake of the
departing shortwave trough.

Medium range (Thursday-Friday night): medium range models are
still having some difficulty with a complex mid troposphere
evolution expected. What they agree on is some vorticity dropping
into the gulf Thursday, prompting cyclogenesis by Thursday morning
along the low level shear axis (remnant front). The timing of the
main shortwave trough turning the corner and lifting out is still
tricky, with the GFS now a bit faster than the ecmwf. So the
period from Thursday afternoon through early Friday will have the
highest chance for showers and scattered thunderstorms, but some
rain risk may stretch into late Friday if the slower ecmwf
solution is correct.

Weekend: although there air mass behind the late week storm
system is not particularly cold, steadily drier air should invade
the region, bringing clearing skies Saturday and allowing low
temperatures to fall into the lower 50s northwest to lower 60s
southeast beaches Sunday morning.


northerly wind surge behind the front is bringing 20-25 knot winds
to the atlantic and gulf waters early this morning. Winds on the
gulf side will diminish this afternoon as the front washes out,
but the pressure gradient will remain tight over the atlantic
waters through tonight as wind veer around to easterly, so
hazardous boating conditions will continue. The fresh breeze will
be accompanied by significant wave heights of 7 feet or so in the
gulf stream. Conditions improve Tuesday on through the rest of
the week, though scattered thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday
and again on Thursday into Friday.

Beach forecast...

there will be a moderate risk of rip currents at the atlantic
beaches today as onshore winds increase. If winds come around to
easterly and increase faster than currently forecast, a later
upgrade to high risk may become necessary. Regardless, beachgoers
should be aware of the risk of rip currents today.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
